Michael has been essential in my recovery from a sports injury to the hip. Starting with a very comprehensive initial assessment, he is able to diagnose complex conditions and set a plan of exercises to progressively get you back to the activities you love. Three months of training have provided striking improvements. I’m back to hiking, swimming and cycling. Definitely recommend Michael.
Sports Injury Treatment
The treatment methods aim at working to empower patients with an injury, in a pateint focused care model of: Sports specific injury education, observational surveillance, osteopathic manually therapy, and through dynamic exercise therapy provide specific exercise therapy and phsyical rehabilitation to achieve recovery goals.
